Lessons from the cold

These things I have learned from the brutally cold weather:
  • A cold house is....... well cold. We had three heaters and a coal fire going and still the house was cold
  • Even though got no insulation afternoon air temperatures are often warmer than inside air temperatures
  • That coal burning heaters, designed to heat hot water, produce very hot water
  • Said how water however will be deep brown color due to the rust from wet back not being used in over a year  
  • Said water heater, does a very poor job of heating the room
  • Coal is dirty and not very efficient fuel in old fires
  • That burning coal in heater brings a smile to my face as it smells like a steam train
Hope that you have found enjoyment in the unusually cold weather 

PS hope to load a video over the next week showing all the work at the orchard that has been keeping me more than busy!
